Favorites on the First - Gifts

I have a quick post to join Allison at The Polohouse for her Favorites on the First.  
November's Linky Party 11/1,2,3
Her theme this month is "Your Favorite Gift To Give".  Here are my picks:

Gift Giving Tags Boating
I'm going with a brown craft paper look this year for all my gifts, and these tags make the packages look soooo cool.  It is always a challenge to find great pieces for men, but these from Seven Barks are a great choice.  They come in themes of dog, horse, boating, and fly fishing.  Aren't they great?

Drink Coasters Canine
Also from Seven Barks, these drink coasters have become my go-to host or hostess gifts.  They are heavy weight paper, almost like fine chipboard and come 30 to a package for only $20.  They also come in dogs, horses, fly fishing and boating.  Each theme comes 4 different images to a beautifully decorated package.  Stock up, people!  Everyone I have ever given them to loves them.
And, how cute are these?  These die cut correspondence cards are soooooo wonderful.  Same themes as above.  They come 10 for $24 and have bright orange envelopes.  Don't you LOVE them?
Wrapping Paper Fishing
And for those special gifts, I'll using this awesome, heavy weight wrapping paper.  Five large sheets to a pack, with the same themes.  This sure makes a present stand out.  I went to Orvis' wharehouse sale and picked up some fishing lures that I use to add that "sumthin, sumthin" to the top of the package.  I love to spoil my men!
You can find other stationery items from Seven Barks on the web under Rebecca Ray Designs.  She also has lots of other choices for really special presents, and has recently added to her men's line.  If you hurry, you can find Seven Barks selling on One King's Lane today.  Go!  Now! Hurry!

Bonus Question:
What would you give if you had all the money in the world?
College Scholarships!


  1. What great gift tags and ideas, especially for the men. I raised sons so it's always on my radar to find gift wrap and tags that have a special masculine feel to them.

    P.S. I'm a little concerned because Alison still hasn't posted her Nov. 1st post to introduce the topic...I hope she wasn't impacted by Sandy.

  2. Hi Linda!
    I did not know about these Seven Bark items! Will run over to OKL right now and will check them out. Love your gift wrapping idea. Perfect!


  3. All wonderful ideas! Being a dog lover, Seven Barks is the perfect spot for gifts. Love your plan to use brown paper wrapping for your gifts too. I did that last year and plan to do it again.

    Susan and Bentley

  4. All of these are the most fabulous ideas for the men in our lives! LOVE those gift tags!
